fox - book - fox









































































A pre-schooler's birthday is fast approaching and I always enjoy choosing books for her. Do you remember Rosie's Walk by Pat Hutchins. Story is so simple but the folky illustrations and patterns are superb. The other is Fox by Margaret Wild and illustrated by Ron Brooks. I was first drawn to the messy type and layout, but reading the story sold me.

I am so curious about this book since our teacher at university talked so much about how it combines simplicity and depht. This book and Maurice Sendak was her all time favourites I think (except for a few swedish ones)Thanks for showing!
